Business in New Zealand

These days, the development of geothermal resources is experiencing a renaissance, with New Zealand home to some of the world’s largest developments.

Our country has a formidable history and world-renowned expertise in geothermal power generation, pioneering large-scale geothermal power generation over 50 years ago with the opening of the Wairakei geothermal power plant.

When it comes to business, the World Bank recently ranked New Zealand as the easiest country in which to operate. This is in no small part down to our skilled and deregulated labour base, sound employment and labour laws, and active government support of new industry and clean technology.

With the World Economic Forum increasingly recognising sustainability as the new business model, New Zealand provides an excellent opportunity for global organisations to position operations strategically, adopt low carbon options for production and support sustainability branding.
